ICP-Bard MFA Symposium: What’s Love Got To Do With It?


What’s Love Got To Do with It:
Affect, Interactivity and the Haptic
A Symposium

Saturday, December 13th, 10AM- 4PM

School at International Center of Photography,
Seminar B/Shooting Studio
1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street
New York, NY 10036

Inspired by Eduardo Cadava and Paola Cortés-Rocca’s Notes on Love and Photography, this symposium will expound on notions of love through an inquiry and exploration of modes of representation. How do experiences of loss, fantasy, intimacy and displacement change our proximity to photography and the creation and interpretation of images? How do physical and virtual relationships cultivated in a Post-Internet culture influence contemporary art practice? Invited panelists and speakers will address the tactics used by artists and thinkers as they navigate the contemporary landscape while reshaping materiality, sensory practices, the economy of sexuality, and fetish.

The ICP-Bard MFA candidates in conjunction with MA candidates from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College are please d to present this one-day symposium. Visual artists, dancers, educators, and curators will come together to re-examine the role love plays in our creation, interaction, and interpretation of art and objects. The day will be comprised of artist talks, panel discussions, and an artist-led performance followed by Q+As from the public. As part of a forthcoming symposium publication, various objects of desire offered by participants will be photographed over the course of the day.

Speakers include: LaToya Ruby FrazierGerard and Kelly, Jacolby Satterwhite Johanna Burton, Andrew Durbin, Jessica Berson and others…
